Understanding How Bank Lawyers Operate in Foreclosure Cases

foreclosure defense attorneys on long islandThe law firms which represent financial institutions in foreclosure legal actions sometimes process thousands of foreclosure cases per year. These law firms are designed to operate efficiently to obtain a maximum profit level on the foreclosure cases they handle. They are most profitable and most successful with regard to their foreclosure litigation when they don’t run into a foreclosure defense lawyer who has a detailed understanding of the legal process involved in foreclosures, the defenses which can be plead and the problems financial institutions have in prosecuting foreclosure lawsuits. It is most profitable for the bank lawyers processing foreclosures when they can move forward with their lawsuit without significant opposition from the homeowners and their counsel.

When my office raises twenty or more affirmative defenses and countersues financial institutions involved in foreclosure lawsuits, it creates numerous problems for the financial institutions and their attorneys. To start with, the bank lawyers go from aggressive moving party to defending their clients’ practices, producing documents and explaining to the court whether all aspects of the mortgage transaction were legal, ethical and appropriate. In numerous cases in which our law firm is involved, we take the banks and their attorneys to task. Sometimes these cases get put aside for years by the bank’s attorneys. In some of the cases the banks simply move to dismiss their own lawsuit.

Mortgage Modifications

By submitting an aggressive, well thought out series of affirmative defenses and counterclaims, the banks are put back on their heals. One of the ways they deal with these cases is by entering into negotiations for mortgage modifications. Sometimes the pressure of an aggressively litigated foreclosure defense results in the bank offering very favorable mortgage modifications as a means of ending the lawsuit.
